Why start a blog? Why start this particular one?
The frequencies of colour, light and energy had been easing their way into my life … through friends who used light and colour therapy. Others who practiced qigong. Some who were aromatherapists, Reiki practitioners and sound therapists. Note, too, that all of these are vibrational therapies and methods. Resonating with our lives …
I enrolled in a couple of courses myself (for Samassati Colour Light Therapy) and then became involved with the International Light Association. And all along this journey, I was learning about the power and influence of colour, light and energy on health, wellbeing and healing.
So, while it took a little while to decide on the title for this blog, the focus was always obvious, and the content self-evident: how to make connections between the influences of colour and light in our lives, and the implications for health.
Light and colour have always been significant, with psychological and emotional influences well-known. They were used in ancient cultures such as Egypt and Greece as part of their healing traditions. Connections between energy and health are also seen in Chinese traditional medicine (qi) and in Ayurvedic medicine through balancing of the body’s energy system (chakras). More recently, energy medicine is a field gaining recognition. Modern science now aims to explain how light, colour and energy work as they do, and also to evaluate their effects on mind and body.
